Nice, where did you get it from? I’m waiting on a yellow 41mm and green 36mm.

I can’t get on with the 41mm. It’d look like a dinner plate on my wrist. You’d need to be a proper unit to make it look proportional IMO. But then maybe you are. Laughing out loud

Local AD in Sussex. They had messed up my place on the waiting list for the new BB58 blue so I think they bumped me up the list for this one to make up for it.

I would normally agree but they don't wear like your typical 41mm, wears a lot closer to the 39mm I would say. I tried the 36mm in comparison and it was tiny (and I normally prefer smaller watches).

Has to, bi-metal daytonas from like 2005 with faded and worn bezel's were around 8k last year, cant believe how much they have jumped, was considering one as a daily but not paying 12k, may have missed the boat, but i feel they will come back under 10k.

looked for a bi-color daytona as a daily beater myself and tbh or around 9-10k you get some pretty good watches. I don't mind the 1k+ but its ridiculous that they already asking up to 17k for the new sub and people are buying that.

I looked just yesterday, couldn't see anything for around 9k, I wouldn't get that odd grey dial, would have to be white or black dial, cheapest I could find was about 12k for one in reasonable condition.

If you've seen any recently under 10k send the link please!

Yeah that is ridiculous for a sub, you need your head tested if you're paying 17k for a sub when you could have a sky dweller or even a royal oak for the same coin.
